Ferguson Now, Two Years After The Michael Brown Shooting

Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on this day two years ago in Ferguson, near St. Louis. 

That shooting sparked weeks of protests and unrest in the community and brought international attention to relations between police and African Americans. The shooting led the Justice Department to demand that Ferguson overhaul its criminal justice system. It also ushered in a new administration. 

De’Carlon Seewood moved from the Chicago southwest suburb of Richton Park last fall to become Ferguson’s new city manager after the former city manager resigned. We talk to Seewood about the Ferguson of today.
